Data results measured as A, B, C or D. I am trying to dynamically turn these into a numerical range to run some maths against. (without using a helper column – which might be the easier way)

In laymans
  • Count the number of [A|B|C|D] in Table column B, lookup [A|B|C|D] value in score table, score x count = total

Results from the the example below :
A = 8
B = 6
C = 4
D = 1

I think I am trying to combine SUMIFS & VLOOKUP – which is not working so well. Although I just came across XLOOKUP, currently reading.

Table

Control 1A
Control 2C
Control 3D
Control 4B
Control 5B
Control 6A
Control 7C


Score Table

A4
B3
C2
D1

Thank you for looking.

Thank you ... When I came to implement I realised I'd asked the wrong question. I'll mark this as solved and ask again.
